DATE: JULY 29TH & 30TH 2017 LOCATION: COOTER'S PLACE IN THE VALLEY CITY: LURAY, VIRGINIA. ATTENDANCE: 20.000 ORGANIZATION: BEN JONES
Cooter’s Last Stand took place at Cooter’s in the Valley near Luray, Virginia the last weekend of July in 2017. This year’s event featured appearances by cast members John Schneider (Bo), Tom Wopat (Luke), Catherine Bach (Daisy), Sonny Shroyer (Enos), Rick Hurst (Cletus), Ben Jones (Cooter) and Don Pedro Colley (Sheriff Little). Ben Jones opened his new store and museum in Luray last May.
This is the last time Ben Jones (age 76) has organized a Dukes of Hazzard event this size. That’s why he labeled it Cooter’s Last Stand. Besides a chance to meet the stars there were General Lee jumps on both days, as well as musical appearances by the whole cast.
